Decorating Advice for Seafoam Green CarpetI'm moving into an apartment where I cannot change the carpeting. It is in good shape, but the color is a seafoam green. The bedroom is a blank slate, but I do not know what color to use with the green on the carpet. It is very hard to match with all of the olives and sages that are so popular now. I am just at a loss of what to do with this unpopular color.
